The interest in designing your own funeral is growing; click to take a look at my past posts on creating your end-of-life event and the many benefits of that kind of advance planning. For those of you who work with families (e.g., estate planners), reminding clients of this process can be a very valuable effort in full and caring client service.
The Newly-Dead Game™ was conceived as a way to help start funeral planning conversations in a fun, non-threatening way. ...
“Couples who have played this game often come away with a fresh appreciation of how much they still need to know about each other when it comes to funeral planning,” said Rubin. “Just as talking about sex won’t make you pregnant, talking about funerals won’t make you dead – and your family really does benefit from the conversation.”
The game is based on elements of The Newlywed Game, but the questions in The Newly-Dead Game revolve around how well the couple knows each other regarding their last wishes.
You may order the game here. Gail will be playing the game live in 2012 at the next Frozen Dead Guy Days (FDGD) in Nederland, Colorado. Last year at this event there was a waiting list to participate in the game; the interest this coming year will likely grow. Put FDGD on your calender for March 2-4. Who wants to go with me?
Nederland is certainly an eclectic and unusual town with both FDGD and the Carousel of Happiness!
